We stopped here on our trip to Fandangle in June. We enjoyed the log cabin and other historical monuments of Texas heritage. There's a longhorn made of various parts and pieces that's fun to look at.

Also in the part is the Ledbetter Picket House which is a classic example of frontier picket construction. It is called a dog trot house and is a standing example of frontier homes on the West Texas prairie.…
